Book Description :

The Handbook of Multicultural Mental Health, Second Edition, discusses the impact of cultural, ethnic, and racial variables for the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, service delivery, and development of skills for working with culturally diverse populations. Intended for the mental health practitioner, the book translates research findings into information to be applied in practice. The new edition contains more than 50% new material and includes contributions from established leaders in the field as well as voices from rising stars in the area. It recognizes diversity as extending beyond race and ethnicity to reflect characteristics or experiences related to gender, age, religion, disability, and socioeconomic status. Individuals are viewed as complex and shaped by different intersections and saliencies of multiple elements of diversity. Chapters have been wholly revised and updated, and new coverage includes indigenous approaches to assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental and physical disorders; spirituality; the therapeutic needs of culturally diverse clients with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities; suicide among racial and ethnic groups; multicultural considerations for treatment of military personnel and multicultural curriculum and training. Foundations-overview of theory and models Specialized assessment in a multicultural context Assessing and treating four major culturally diverse groups in clinical settings Assessing and treating other culturally diverse groups in clinical settings Specific conditions/presenting problems in a cultural context Multicultural competence in clinical settings

Book Description :

This chapter provides an overview of research on the mental health of Latinos in the United States with emphasis on the cultural constructs and theories with relevance for assessment and intervention with this population. A distinction is made between factors that confer advantages and those that may increase vulnerability at both the individual and environmental levels. This chapter suggests that treatment considerations need to be tailored based on individual needs that incorporate complexities of culture and gender so that clients are not viewed in a stereotypical manner. This discussion is followed by a summary of contemporary research rooted in positive and resilience psychology in order to build on strengths within the culture, such as positive ethnic identity, civic engagement, family support, bicultural teaching in the home, spirituality, and storytelling.

Book Description :

Indigenous psychology (IP) shares with critical health psychology a discontent with mainstream psychology and the endeavor to offer alternative formulations of health and illness. As an alternative to the individualistic framework of health in mainstream psychology, we propose a model of the self as a multilayered concentric system. For illustration, we present a variety of indigenous traditions, with special focus on the health-related beliefs and practices in India. Implications of this alternative model of culture and self for the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental disorders are explored. Relevance of this framework to health psychology is discussed, with special focus on the DSM-V controversy, A. E. Kazdin’s call for health reform, and visions of hybridization in the global community.

Book Description :

Evidence-based bias reduction in low-inference and high-inference personality assessment instruments is now consensually recognized. Bias in standard psychological tests such as the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI-2), Rorschach (RCS), and Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) has been dramatically reduced. MMPI-2 deficiencies in items, norms, flawed psychometric properties, and construct meanings have been minimized in a restructured MMPI-2-RF. The Rorschach Comprehensive System (RCS) recently incorporated revised diagnostic constructs and a theoretical model of affect contributing to therapeutic feedback. In addition, the new Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS) is an evidence-based internationally focused and culturally relevant system using externally accessed behavioral criteria. The TAT now has a reference compendium of objective scores representing a number of systems for both high-inference and low-inference interpretation of this test. The Tell-Me-A-Story test (TEMAS) provides scores and interpretations for cross-cultural and multicultural groups.

Book Description :

This chapter reviews research on psychotherapy effects and treatment engagement for ethnically diverse youth and families. Evidence supports several methods for increasing treatment engagement for ethnic minority youth and families, including written and verbal prompts, and targeting barriers to treatment attendance (by phone or in person). Over 30 efficacious interventions were identified for treating ethnic minority youth and families, and the effect size magnitude was in the small to medium range. However, most of the evidence was found for Latino and African American youth, with limited to no evidence supporting psychosocial treatments for Asian, Native American, or other non-White youth. Research evaluating ethnic differences in treatment effects was equivocal, with most studies suggesting that White and non-White youth benefit equally. There was evidence supporting the efficacy of culturally tailored interventions over control groups, but it is unclear whether cultural tailoring enhances outcomes above and beyond generic treatment effects. The chapter concludes with recommendations for improving psychosocial intervention research with diverse youth and families.

Book Description :

The chapter focuses on multicultural issues in the definition, epidemiology, diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of racially and ethnically diverse clients with intellectual disabilities (IDs). Prevalence rates of mental health problems for persons with IDs are significantly higher than their peers without IDs. Psychological assessment and treatment are especially complex with persons from culturally diverse groups with IDs. Despite the growing recognition of the importance of considering diversity issues, there is a paucity of appropriate assessment measures and methods, evidence-based interventions, and clinicians trained to address the mental health needs of racially and ethnically diverse people with IDs and related disabilities. Recommendations for future directions and research are discussed.

Book Description :

A young female client presents with anorexia nervosa and believes that her problem has its roots in magic; parents are helpless in the face of their son's substance abuse issues; an interracial couple cannot agree on how to discipline their children. How would you effectively help these clients while balancing appropriate interventions that are sensitive to religious, cultural, social, and gender differences? This handbook answers these difficult questions and helps behavioral health practitioners provide religio-culturally-competent care to Muslim clients living in territories such as North America, Australia, and Europe. The issues and interventions discussed in this book, by authoritative contributors, are diverse and multifaceted. Topics that have been ignored in previous literature are introduced, such as sex therapy, substance abuse counseling, university counseling, and community-based prevention. Chapters integrate tables, lists, and suggested phrasing for practitioners, along with case studies that are used by the authors to help illustrate concepts and potential interventions. Counseling Muslims is also unique in its broad scope, which reflects interventions ranging from the individual to community levels, and includes chapters that discuss persons born in the West, converts to Islam, and those from smaller ethnic minorities. It is the only guide practitioners need for information on effective service delivery for Muslims, who already bypass significant cultural stigma and shame to access mental health services.
